Amelia Island, FL Indian Wedding by Riant Films

The heartwarming wedding celebration of Sejal and Vinit at the beautiful Amelia Island in Florida is brought to you by Riant Films. The storytellers attended the grand affair and captured every smile, dance, and blessings of the momentous occasion on film, from the mehndi party to the glorious reception and everything in between! The lovebird’s had Nikun Events designed all the fabulous decoration of their wedding day and what a great job they did, creating such enchanting and inspiring events at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation. The coastal resort was the perfect romantic setting for the couple to exchange the ultimate vows and to throw a fantastic evening reception enlivened by the talented DJ Shilpa. Sejal’s hands were beautified by Sushila’s Beauty Care and Vinit’s good style was portrayed by Sona Photography, and we have all the great imagery featured on our Platinum Guide Blog. Hit play to the beautiful wedding highlight film below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We initially got in touch after being matched on Hinge. After a month or so of texting, we had our first date at Gottino, a bar in the West Village in New York. Our relationship took off pretty quickly from there. About four months into us dating, Vinit was looking to move to a new apartment. He was looking at all the buildings in my area, except for my building. I suggested he look in my building and he found a great apartment. He took the apartment and moved in a month later. That was the start of knowing he was the one! I really knew, though, after he spent a weekend in Fire Island with ~15 of my college friends. Two guys got into a food fight and an entire birthday cake ended up on Vinit’s lap. His clothes were ruined. But he just laughed it off, changed, and continued having a great time. Seeing how easily he mixed with all my friends, while still looking out for me, and how much more I enjoyed any experience when he was around made me realize he was the one. Six months into us dating we took a trip to Italy together. It was there that we first talked about how we thought we would get married and knew we both had found the one.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We got engaged on June 10th, 2016. About a month before this, Vinit’s sister-in-law emailed both of us saying they had won tickets in an auction to the Broadway show “The Color Purple” for June 10th and wanted to see if we wanted to go with them. We of course agreed, and I didn’t think twice about it! A couple days before, Vinit’s brother suggested we go to dinner beforehand and told us a time and restaurant to meet at. Since Vinit and I lived in the same building, on the day of, he told me to just come over to his place and we’d head out together. As I opened his door I just saw candles and rose petals everywhere. He lined the path from the doorway to the center of the living room with candles, flowers, and rose petals, and he stood waiting in a suit. He said many nice things (which I had to be retold later) and then got down on one knee. After the proposal, I turned around to see that on his dining table he had printed tons of pictures of us and also had mementos from our dates – like the scorecard from going mini-golfing on our third date, and the card of the restaurant we went to in Jacksonville on our first Valentine’s day. He had also made a beautiful playlist of all my favorite romantic songs. After we spent some time together, I asked if I could call my parents. He said, why don’t we go tell your sister first (whom I lived with just upstairs). When we went up to the apartment, I was surprised by my parents, his parents, my sister, and his brother and his family. We popped champagne and spent time together before going to an amazing dinner at ABC Kitchen that Vinit had organized. Then we got to spend the rest of the weekend as a soon to be family!
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Wedding planning was not easy as I lived in California, Vinit was in New York, and the wedding was going to be in Florida. However, we had tremendous help from our parents and siblings to make it all happen. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation, where we held the wedding, was phenomenal in adapting to the needs of an Indian wedding. We had great experiences with many vendors, including Sona Photography, Riant Films, Beyond a Salon, DJ Shilpa, Signature Weddings & Events (Cyndi Benzel), and many more. We were fortunate that because I had grown up in a vibrant Indian community in Jacksonville, we had recommendations from numerous family friends and had experience working with many of the vendors in the past.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our families went shopping in Mumbai to pick out wedding clothes. I had been following all the major designers on Instagram for a long time by this point so had an idea of the styles. I knew for the wedding itself I would have a red lengha or red and white. We found a phenomenal selection at Friendship in Mumbai as well as at Seasons and all the clothes for myself, my sister, and my mom were bought from these stores.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Spreadsheets! But really. I love organizing and making to-do lists, almost to a fault. And I love making Excel spreadsheets! I genuinely enjoy executing on tasks and thinking of next steps, so enjoyed, or rather felt competent at, that aspect of the planning process. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food and the music! The food was incredibly good, with so much variety and quantity. Rajbhog did a phenomenal job. DJ Shilpa kept the party going all day and all night. She, her team, and the dhol player made the Baraat one of the liveliest that people have ever been to and made sure the garba and the reception had everyone on the dance floor. We also received many compliments on how all of the events started on time…perhaps a pleasant surprise for an Indian wedding! Finally, we got a lot of compliments on our ceremony and how we had adapted the traditional Hindu / Jain ceremony to be our own.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly, everything about it was perfect. Two moments do come to mind though. One is being on the mandap. Vinit and I would chat up there, making each other laugh here and there. It really felt like we were just hanging out. But then we would look out at the audience and see all the people we love and care about, through so many walks of life, smiling back at us. To have everyone that is important to you in one place at one time is so special. I felt similarly when we were on the dance floor at the reception. Just looking around the dance circles and seeing everyone having a blast, and being there for you, is overwhelming in the most positive way.
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Though I knew this, I was reminded a million times over, how strong the Indian community in Jacksonville is and how lucky I am to have grown up there. Our family’s closest friends were constantly helping with all the details. I spent the two weeks before the wedding at home and was amazed by the number of people always showing up to help. The uncles and aunties transformed our house, decorating it with colorful saris and lights throughout our home, and helping to organize and decorate a tent in our backyard. They were always the first to show up and the last to leave. Some of the aunties even prepared special songs to sing at the mehndi and pithi. The biggest surprise of all was that seven couples and my parents performed a dance at the Garba. My parents rarely dance, but it was their idea, and the family friends agreed without hesitation. It was incredibly special. It was also so special to have our friends dance at both the Garba and the reception. My bridesmaids from Jacksonville performed a dance at the Garba, which I joined as a surprise. Then our friends from childhood, college, grad school, and NY performed a dance at the reception. They started off re-creating dances I had choreographed for other friends’ weddings which were so creative, thoughtful, and fun, and ended with a dance of their own. 
 
One of the most fun parts for Vinit and I, even before the actual day, was learning our first dance. My family had gifted us dance lessons in which a very strict teacher got us prepped for our debut performance. We had a great time learning and practicing and then finally getting to perform it.
 
My dad and I surprised the crowd during our Father / Daughter dance by transitioning from a slow song into a Bollywood dance. It was actually his idea to do this, and we had a great time with it!
 
Our ceremony was also really special as we made many parts our own. Our priest is someone very special to me as I’ve grown up with him as the leader of our mandhir. He worked with us to make sure it was exactly what we wanted, and did a tremendous job translating each and every detail in English so that the entire audience could understand what was happening throughout the ceremony. We made the decision to remove the Kanyadaan as I felt it did not align with the values we hold for a women’s role in marriage and life. We replaced it with a step we created in which both of our families came to the mandap and we expressed our promises and commitments to them as our families came together. It was very special for us to do this and something that our guests very much enjoyed as well. We got a lot of positive feedback that there are rituals that can be seen as outdated, and it was great to see how we can evolve our customs to better represent how we think and live today.
 
Vinit and I aren’t the most creative people so our décor was mainly a mix of things we had seen in pictures and inspiration from our decorators. Our decorators did a fantastic job of a quick switch to an indoor ceremony when it turned out to be too windy to host it on the beach. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It strikes me as odd that almost every Indian couple I have ever talked to has said that the wedding planning process is brutal. And ours was no walk in the park either. But it makes me wonder, does it really have to be that way? For many of us, whose parents were born and raised in India, there is a large cultural difference that really comes out during wedding planning. For our parents, their parents planned their weddings and in large part, they obliged to their parent's wishes. Knowing that it should come as no surprise, that subconsciously or consciously they hope for the same. It is often their dream to plan their kid’s wedding, and they dream about that day often as much as we, the kids, do. But here in America, we are raised in a culture where the bride and groom, and particularly the bride, do all the planning. So how do you reconcile this without someone feeling they are getting the short end of the stick? There’s often no easy answer. In retrospect, though, I think it’s extremely important to have an expectation setting conversation before even starting to plan. This includes talking through the norms of how our decisions will be made – who has decision making authority vs. who is just there for input? Agree to this in advance. It’s also critical to know what are the most important things to each person. Let each person (parent/sibling) identify the 2-3 things that are most important to them about the wedding, and try to fulfill that for them. And to the parents, also recognizing that your child has a dream for their own wedding with potentially differing priorities and how to balance that with your own is important. There is a great article from a mom’s perspective that speaks to this - https://www.indiaabroad.com/opinion/a-dream-indian-wedding-but-whose-dream/article_9d50ddf6-78a4-11e7-8e4f-a76a769f9ba2.html
 
And finally, most importantly, keep open communication with your partner. Keep in mind that what you are doing is just planning an event, but you have the rest of your life ahead. Don’t let the magic of your relationship die with the stress of planning. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Publix makes the most incredible wedding cakes. We have gotten so many compliments on the cake and people cannot believe it is from a grocery store (even if it is the best grocery store!).
 
The Omni in Amelia Island is a fantastic venue to consider for anyone in Florida or anyone looking for a destination wedding. The property is absolutely beautiful with an array of activities for your guests. While still new to Indian weddings, the sales manager and events coordinator worked extremely hard to accommodate our requests and help ensure we had an amazing wedding weekend.
 
Sushila from Sushila’s Beauty Care in Jacksonville provides fantastic mehndi along with several other services like hair, makeup, sari dressing, etc.

Amelia Island, Florida Indian Wedding by Pacific Pictures

Today I am going to share a blockbuster of an Indian wedding that incorporates class, luxury, and style. This is the ultimate in Indian wedding design, Maharanis! This cinematic experience by Pacific Pictures is absolutely mind-blowing. Florida got the Bollywood treatment with Nisha and Sunny's over the top Indian wedding events. The bride looked gorgeous for each of her events with beauty credit to Style by Susmita. The outdoor mandap was a fusion of love with copious blooms and romantic drapery designed by Occasions by Shangrila. The backdrop of the ocean sealed the deal for this ceremony and I honestly couldn’t agree more with staging the outdoor area with the decor. Sometimes, you have to let nature take its course and this was a win-win for all! I cannot wait to feature all the images and create an editorial feature honoring the work of Didar Virdi. But for now, feast your eyes on all the beauty hailing from this Indian wedding by hitting play. 

What an incredible event! See you all tomorrow!

Ypsilanti, MI Indian Wedding by Aria Films

We have your daily dose of wedding inspiration ready! Today, we are reliving Kavita & Mitul's wedding out of Michigan and I guarantee you will be taking lots of notes for your own wedding! Aria Films' keen eye captured our lovebirds' wedding weekend and has all the deets for us to enjoy, starting with a fun sangeet filled with garba dances and delicious food. Maharani Kavita looked absolutely adorable in an orange and gold lengha and enjoyed a special girls time while getting ready with all her bridesmaids and female family members close by. This wedding especially moved my heart with a touching moment in our bride's own words "When the first look came around, I set up a first look with my dad first. I was always daddy's helper and wanted to see him before I went to see Mitul.  And bring on the tears...he cried and eventually I cried." How adorable this moment must have been! The ceremony took place in one of Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest's halls where Blaire Exclusive Events teamed up with Flowers by Amore to bring the couple's garden theme vision inside and what a wonderful job they did! The greenery continued in a starlit night garden reception with a touch of glam where guests were delighted with Krishna Catering and Restaurant's savory dishes. Our bride shined in a perfect blue and silver sparkling lengha with Raja Mitul next to her in an elegant black tux. Hit play and watch our lovely couple dance the night away!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mitul & I first matched on Tinder back in Fall 2014.  We had exchanged a few conversations here and there but neither of us seemed to really put in a lot of effort to keep the conversation going to it kind of fizzled out.  Come April 2015, we both happened to match on Coffee Meets Bagel.  We weren't sure if the other person remembered our Tinder encounter but we both took a chance and started chatting it up.  For those who don't know, Coffee Meets Bagel has a day limit on how long your chat is "open" via the app (something like 10 days) and a couple days before ours "closed" Mitul messaged me his phone number saying that our chat was going to close and here's his number and that we should hang out and grab some dinner soon.  So I texted him and roughly a week passes by where he still hadn't actually asked me out...so I texted him and was like "hey, so are we going to go on this dinner or what?" He finally set a date and time and we had our first date (mind you, it was NBA playoffs and the Bulls were doing well and he chose an important game day to ignore the game and go out with me).  Our first date lasted 5 hours.
 
After that, we didn't see each other for like 10 days and I thought he was ignoring me.  He brought up the fact that he had been sick and I said well are you up for a movie and that I could come there.  Since then, we had seen each other essentially every day.
 
Our relationship developed very quickly and within a month I told my parents to stop sending my biodata out and that I have met someone.  Within another month and a half, we said that magical four-letter word and that is when I knew he was the one. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mitul proposed over Labor day weekend in 2016.  We had moved in together recently and I was expecting a ring with the move-in...that didn't happen.  Then we went on this family beach vacation in early July 2015 and I thought he would propose then because I mentioned before how I would want my family there...it didn't happen (later I find out this is when he tried to ask my parents for permission).  His brother got married in July 2016 and his mom so wanted Mitul to propose prior to the wedding so she could introduce me to all the extended London family as her next daughter-in-law.  Mitul thought it wouldn't be fair to his brother and new SIL to take away from their wedding so he waited.  The weekend right after his brother's wedding we plan a weekend getaway, so here I am thinking okay, the wedding is over and he's going to do it this weekend (bought a new dress and all)...didn't happen.
 
Saturday of Labor Day weekend we decided to host a BBQ at our apartment and it ended up being a family affair with like 20 adults and 6-7 kids crammed into our 1300 sq ft place...lots of fun but very stressful "hosting" the family for the first time.  The next day, we had planned a date day in the city.  I had lived in Chicago for a few years now and had not done all the touristy things (architecture tour, to to the top of Will Tower, Hancock building, Lincoln Park Zoo).  We started with the architecture tour and of course were running late due to the sleep deprivation from the event before.  He seemed super stressed but I just put it to him being extremely timely.  We get the last seats on this boat and head out.  When we get back to the dock, we wait for everyone to get off the boat so we could get some pictures that we didn't do since we were running late.  He asks the captain to take some and as I was enjoying the scenery he goes to look at them and asks him to take a few more.  I turn around and Mitul is down on one knee with the ring! I at first freak out, take like 5-6 steps backward and then the waterworks.
 
We leave the boat and are walking to this restaurant (Quartinos) where he has lunch reservations.  The restaurant has a small sidewalk patio right at the entrance that we walk by because normally you go inside for your reservation. Mitul was like why don't we just grab this table outside (pointing to the left).  I turn and there are his parents, siblings, significant others...and my parents!  Again, waterworks. He had my parents drive in from Troy, MI (my hometown) that morning for the surprise!  My sister and her family couldn't make it as they live in DC and her work schedule so we FaceTime-ed with her. It was perfect.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
In a weird way, I loved logging into the venue's seating and layout program and working on the layouts and color coding.  Just knowing that I could easily organize this and depict what I wanted so clearly was satisfying.  Seating assignments took no more than 15 minutes (I told my parents how many tables they had, the table numbers and layout and they did "adults", I did my younger cousins and friends)
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests could not stop raving about the food and the DJ.  Everyone kept saying that they went back for seconds and thirds even when they couldn't eat anymore.  Love my caterers.
 
The DJ was amazing from pre-wedding touchpoints, dance music cutting, accommodating the schedule changes during events and kept the party going until 1:45 am.  Our reception started later due to some issues with the Venue and so the venue graciously kept the bars open longer and let us go longer.  
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think every moment was really special.  We didn't want anything to feel like a formal affair and just wanted to be surrounded by the people we love and the things we love.  It was non-stop smiles all weekend and even our priest at the end of the ceremony said that this is one of the first ceremonies that he had just seen true laughter, playfulness, and joy between a couple.  
 
If I did have to pick one, I think it would have to be the first look....with my dad.  I know most brides have their moment with the groom and don't get me wrong, that was really special...fist bump and all.  I chose to have a first look with my dad because during my sister's wedding 11 years prior, she got ready at the house and he got to witness all of it.  I got ready with all my bridesmaids far away from the guests and my dad was needed to help out with my sister's 4-year-old twin boys and get them ready.  I remember it being very quiet as I walked down the stairs, walking to my dad and just hearing all the clicking from the camera.  I remember him hold my hand, putting his hands on my face to look at me and then starting to tear up. And then I distinctly remember saying while choking up myself "you can't cry...because I will too and my makeup will get ruined before I see Mitul".  We get it together, get some pictures together and then see my mom upstairs in the balcony just smiling away and taking pictures.  She felt the FOMO and then wanted to come down and join us so we said fine and got some pictures with her as well.
 
There was also the bet that I found out the groomsmen had on how many rounds of garba Mitul would do.  He doesn't know anything about Bollywood, doesn't do garba/raas and when he hears Indian music at the reception he heads for the bar. I, on the other hand, have danced my entire life, was on a college garba/raas team and love to choreograph and perform dances.  He humored me enough and did at least like 15 rounds with me.
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Mehendi - We did it at a temple that I grew up in close to the house.  Mitul had a lot of family from London here and I wanted them to be a part of it so they caravanned over from Chicago to Troy and had the Mehendi at the temple.  We had done my sister's garba there 11 years prior and I wanted it to be a part of the celebrations in some way.  I let my mom and her friends handle the decor.  Honestly, with my sister's wedding, they all handled it and I trusted them.
 
Vidhi - Again, my mom had been collecting things for years from her trips to India (I think she was just hoping at some point I'd get married) so the house decor was directed by her.  
 
Garba - I wanted a garba.  Mitul's siblings didn't have one at their weddings and I know Mitul's mom loves garba so it was nice for them to have one.  I just wanted multicolors and a swing.  I picked the backdrop colors and linen colors, but the table centerpieces and side decor next to the swing was all my mom's doing.  We had a bridal party dance, my sister did a dance and I did one. I was super nervous for my dance.  I had been working out for the wedding and twisted my ankle pretty badly 6 weeks before the wedding stepping onto a kettle ball accidentally.  I'm already a perfectionist when it comes to dancing so only being able to start choreography 10 days prior and hoping to stick it was extremely stressful.  I remember icing my ankle after the garba because it was swollen and icing it again in the morning, hobbling around in my 5" heels (having a 6'4 husband is rough on the heels) for pictures and then making the game-time decision to not even wear heels walking down the aisle since I could barely walk as is.
 
Reception - I wanted to turn the garden part of the ceremony into a midnight garden and I got exactly that.  I wanted to reuse decor from the wedding because honestly, you pay so much for things and its used for a couple hours during the ceremony.  I changed out the backdrop from bright and white to maroon, added deep colored linens and flowers and lots of candles and crystals.  We actually bought a lot of the votives and candles ourselves and had our planner give them to the florist to set up on the table.  It cost 1/3 of the price just made more sense.  A lot of our stage crystal decor we bought at discount stores like Marshalls and I now use them as decor in my apartment.  Wherever I could find a way to save by purchasing on my own or re-using I did...really who is going to notice that?
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Nothing will go perfectly as planned and you have to be okay with it.  The Wednesday of the wedding week, we had people over while I got my mehndi done on my feet and to kick off the wedding with some Bollywood karaoke at the house.  Just earlier that afternoon, our basement flooded with the pipes backing up.  I got down on my hands and knees and was using our tank vacuum to suck up water more quickly than it was backing up, we had to call emergency plumbers who put a camera down the pipe and when they found a clog like 80' away from the house that was causing the backup.  Basement all wet and smelly, having family staying with us, carpet all cut up...just had to go with the flow.  The garba day, the garba part was going to start at 7:30 and not even half the people were there by then so we pushed back the entire program by 30 minutes twice, made on the spot decisions to cut garba to 30 mins and raas to 30 mins just to accommodate the schedule change.  My sprained ankle. My makeup artist showed up 45 minutes late the morning of the wedding.  The venue forgot to check if they had all the table numbers for the reception and my planner had to print them last minute.  My florist couldn't figure out how to get the flowers to stay "sunken"...just wasn't working that day. Doors opened 30 minutes late.  The bar opened in the middle of my dad's speech and I couldn't hear a thing over the crowd noise.  So many things will happen that you can't plan for and you just have to remember that in the end, everyone is still enjoying it and honestly you and your vendors are probably the only people that noticed.  Smiles all day every day.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The cake...White Bavarian Cream cake...was delicious.  Thomas Cake shop is this small mom & pop bakery in Troy, MI and we got my sister's bridal shower cake from there back in 2006.  Its this layered white cake with a custard layer, a fresh cream & raspberry jam layer, covered with fresh cream (no sugared icing or fondant...just fresh, light cream) and then pressed into the cream all over the cake these large, thick white chocolate shavings.  We used it at my sister's bridal shower, her wedding, her baby shower, every event thereafter and it was going to always be my wedding cake.  We then found out that they can make it eggless so we tried the eggless version and it tasted exactly the same.  Mitul has some family (including his mom) that don't eat eggs and there are always the grandparents that don't and I wanted to make sure everyone could enjoy it so we did it eggless. Needless to say, that bakery now is popular with all of our family and friends in the Troy area especially since they do it just as well eggless.
